    Supermanlogo DC's latest reboot

    I don't know why I'm even mildly interested in how this goes, even from afar. Scott Lobdell's involvement doesn't inspire my confidence any further, but the image of classic Batman (with the oval) and Robin piqued my interest just a little bit.

    Oh, but it's "epic" and "seismic-level."

    It's part of the DC FCBD offering, so I will likely check it out. I really liked the Wonder Woman story in #750 kicking off her new timeline, and as along as the result is stories I like to read, I could care less about what they do with overall continuity anyways-trying to fit all of Superman's adventures into a timespan where he is eternally 29 results in him having to have about 134 adventures a day to get them all to fit with that passage of time, so it's all utter ridiculousness anyways. Unless you are going to have characters, grow, age, change, retire and be replaced, there's no sense in trying to make every story fit anyways. Just tell good stories, the rest will take care of itself. The Siegel and Shuster Superman bears little resemblance to the Weisenger era Superman as even though there was no "reboot" they were essentially different characters reflecting the sensibilities of different times, not the same character evolving as a result of the stories told in a single continuity. Continuity has always been a fan creation and only really entered into comics when fans grew up and started writing comics.

    Indeed!

    The Marvel True Believer series and the DC Dollar Comics keep me pretty happy.

    Apparently DC head honcho Dan DiDio recently admitted at a con, that DC's Dollar reprints and Facsimile editions were outselling their NEW comics...which is really, really sad. But you think that would give them a clue.
